Arlington's Best Diner Goes Smoke-Free
They said Arlington's bars would never voluntarily go smoke-free ... then Liberty Tavern did and places like Eleventh, Union Jacks, and Clarendon Grill soon followed.
They said sports bars would never go smoke-free ... then Summers created a separate smoke-free bar, followed by Four Courts and Crystal City Sports Pub, and Thirsty Bernie's opened entirely smoke-free.
Now Arlington's best diner, Bob & Edith's at Columbia Pike & S. Wayne St., is going 100% smoke-free:
Arlington bars and restaurants have no excuses left for not going smoke-free. Really, what are places like Rock Bottom, Bailey's, and Ri Ra's waiting for?
Hmmm. Maybe there's a pattern here. Seems like locally-owned places tend to listen to Arlingtonians and go smoke-free, while nationally-managed chains tend to stick to their smoky status quo. What do you think?
